It is a beautiful thing, when a career & a passion come together.
So, I'm currently finishing my undergraduate career; a junior, majoring in Biology and up until a couple of months ago, I absolutely loved the idea of a career in the medicine field.
I can't think of an exact day or an exact moment even, I just know that something changed.
I subtlety started picking up writing as a hobby; you know, with no future thoughts I bought a beautiful leather journal and then I decided to start a blog for a fun way to write my thoughts down and before you know it I'm reading books on "writing your first novel" and getting an internship as a blogger/writer. But to tell you the truth?
I couldn't be happier. I fell in love with writing, it turned into my perfect get-away.
Serendipity, you could say.
I'll be 21 years old in roughly 2 months and they say nothing will ruin your twenties more than thinking you should have your life together. I'm just trying to find my place in the world, discovering what I'm good at and what I enjoy doing. And as of today, I want to write. It's possible that it might not go far or that it won't go anywhere at all, it'll definitely be a struggle but it's a struggle that I am enjoying 10 times more than the struggle of my science classes.
Truth is, no matter what you decide for your future, you will have to endeavor and there will be a crazy amount of obstacles. There's equal parts of fear and courage within me, the key is to trust the process and give it your all. Regardless, you will struggle along the way, I just think you have to figure out which struggle you don't mind going through.
